About the property

Great cottage for a couple. Very quiet and private. Bocce court, outdoor grill and a large screened porch make relaxing easy. The cottage is located adjacent to Lamoine State Park and is one mile to the town park at Lamoine Beach. Kayaks and boats are easily launched at either location. Many outdoor activities and sight seeing trips are easily acessed, including Acadia National Park and the less traveled downeast coastal areas. Excellent dining and shopping are close by in Ellsworth. The owners live nearby and are always available if needed. Please read our Homeway reviews, people love the cottage and the location.

About Eric Hartman

We are Eric and Diane and have lived together in a 1790's farmhouse on our Lamoine property for 15 years. The cottage was built in 2005. We both work locally, Diane is a nurse mid-wife at our local hospital and Eric is a tennis teaching professional. We love to hike, kayak and garden in the summer months.

Why Eric Hartman chose Lamoine

We love our cottage in the woods and spend many nights there when we can. A great friend of ours built the cottage with lumber from our property and there is a lot of love built in. Our home and the cottage are located on a large piece of undeveloped land that has been in Eric's family for 40 years.

Nature lovers dream

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed lots of wildlife just by looking out the window! Owls, song birds, porcupine and a bobcat. Relaxing. The only thing that could be improved, the mattress on the bed.

Wonderful, peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect, exactly as pictured and described. Quaint, clean, secluded and quiet. Eric was great and in contact via texting he helped with questions on local markets, and provided an outdoor cooker so we could have the experience of cooking our own lobster! Highly recommend this cottage if your an outdoorsman, and can appreciate the simple things.

Quiet cottage, perfectly rustic, private but accessible. Very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Gracious hosts who gave us a quiet week, we enjoyed our first visit to ME! Cottage was impressively clean, very rustic rough-wood cut. Perfect array of needed dishes/glasses/cooking supplies. Perfect distance from Acadia NP, with its own State Park out the door, walking trails in the other direction, and a quiet location. Would visit again in a heartbeat - thank you for the warm welcome of the flowers and quiet week! We enjoyed our time tremendously.

Fantastic location away from the main population

  • 5 of 5

Great starting point for our DownEast visit. One needs to be able to climb a ladder into the loft but it's all part of the experience. Thanks to Eric and Diane for the place to stay!

Tiny house in relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending our 10th anniversary in this adorable cabin! The complete kitchen allowed us to buy food to make our own meals, which saved sone money. The cool Maine nights were the perfect sleeping weather!

Wonderful little vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this little cottage for a week. It's about 15 minutes away from grocery stores (which was very convenient). And 30-40 mins away from Bar Harbor and Acadia. A state park with beach access is right across the street and more beach is right down the road. This place does not have a television or a wifi, which, for us was a huge plus! The owners live close by and made themselves available if we had any questions. It was a great place to stay, highly recommend it!!
